right now has been a nightmare for federal and local law enforcement. the leaks that came out today should be an embarrassment. i'm certain that they are. there may be a couple of meetings going on with the chief of police in boston whose department tweeted out information about an arrest today which was completely erroneous. this has been embarrassing for law enforcement at the wrong time. >> so it wasn't the a.p., it was the tweet and the a.p. picked up the tweet? >> yes, the police department apparently tweeted out some information about an arrest. >> bob, talk to me about that and the fact that they still have made considerable progress, have they not, since the terror attack occurred. a lot of people didn't think that they would have a person of interest either in custody or even an image of that person by this point. >> well, since 9/11, the department of homeland security and law enforcement at large has really taken some really tremendous strides and using technology to be able to assist law enforcement, the cameras, surveillance cameras, all those things become part of this
told to shelter in place, as you well know. and as a result of this, law enforcement authorities are very hopeful that they will be able to conclude their search by going door to door. last check, they had about 70% of that accomplished. we're still waiting for an afternoon briefing. we don't know when that will occur. but in the early morning briefing, they did say there were new developments they were trying to run down and firm up and they would bring us those at the afternoon briefing. of course, as you know, things are changing quite rapidly and as a result of that, that briefing may get pushed back once again. so, that's what we know at this point. and they came, the suspects, as you know, came from an area in russia quite close to chechnya. we are still translating those tapes that we got from the father, an interview that he did with reuters. it's in russian, we're translating it. a number of the family members have been speaking out with very diverse opinions on this whole situation. so we're working on those, we'll bring them to you when we have them. maria and andrew,
, and it does appear according to nbc news sources in law enforcement, that there is some video of somebody placing a black bag or a dark bag at the site near the site of the explosions. we should caution that there may have been a lot of people placing bags on the ground, as they come to watch runners pass the finish line. that may not have been the bomb at all. but if you are an investigator trying to get to the bottom of this, that's someone opportunity to talk to. and what law enforcement sources are telling us is that there are a lot of people now that they want to talk to based on all of this evidence. but with everybody, world media here, law enforcement agencies from around the country, really lacking at this, there are a lot of -- there's a lot of information that's flying around and a lot o opportunipportuniti to conclusions. that appears to be what happened. nonetheless, they've made some tremendous strides. we can see that based on what we're looking at on the ground since the attacks on monday afternoon. guys? >> a great rundown, scott, of what we know and don't know at this po

does law enforcement approach this scenario? what do you think the next few hours will look like? >> i think it will be a deliberative and careful process. as you say, they are closing in on the suspect and that is tightening. one of the concerns is does this individual have explosives attached to his body, has he taken someone hostage. is that wired explosively and we've seen that in other plots as the net tightened that the individuals decided to use explosives. >> we have boston p.d. on this, there's fbi, there's atf and massachusetts guardsmen. who is in the lead here? >> the lead will be the joint terrorism task force which is led by the fbi. so in a sense, they're organizing all of the constituent agencies and giving direction. i wonder, someone mentioned the events in the last three hour, this all was an attempted robbery. an m.i.t. rob shot and killed, grenades thrown from a vehicle. report of the dead suspect having an ied on his person. characterize, scale from one to ten, level of danger as they get closer to this remaining suspect? >> i would say it's about a level eight. b
were the law enforcement officials doing their job. so you have a community that is very much cooperating with law enforcement in this lockdown. everybody understands the importance and the need to stay out of the way and let the officials do their job, as they go literally door to door to juror, to try to find this 19-year-old suspect. so, yes, this has been a day like no other. i can guarantee you, in the city metropolitan area around boston. >> and the thinking, bill, in terms of going door to door, the thinking is, perhaps someone is hiding them in their homes? it's quite fascinating that the police are going door to door in all of these homes in that region. >> the thinking, maria, is that this 19-year-old may be holding somebody hostage in their home. you're not supposed to open the door to anybody unless they identify themselves clearly as a law enforcement official. so it is clear, they are still going door to door, and it is possible, they believe, that this 19-year-old chechen could be holding somebody hostage or could be on the move and trying to, you know, find a l
of that fight. how did he -- and law enforcement is doing a great job, but how is it that he got away? how far could he have gotten? >> well, he could be anywhere. they still -- the operative theory as far as everybody that we have heard as of midday today was that he was still here, or in the immediate boston area. but as one of your guest said, he's a local boy. he knows this area and knows where to hide and where to go. the hope is that they've got him, but he certainly isn't making himself known. and one of the things about keeping everybody inside is that if he does go outside, if he does try and get away, he would be pretty easily spotted. i mean, this is really -- it is like a ghost town with the exception of the military and an awful lot of media waiting here. the thinking is you would know him. this is where they chased him to and where they last had him. so it makes sense that there's a heavy search here. but as you know, the public transit, the amtrak trains, everything has shut down in this whole metropolitan area, and a lot of people are looking for him. >> and there's really only
law enforcement officials would be thinking at this time. >> well, i think the main goal right now is to get this other guy in custody before he hurts anybody else and try to close out the situation. he's a very, very dangerous person. i don't think anyone is safe in that area until he's apprehended. and it sounds to me like he doesn't want to be taken alive. so there could be another chutout before this whole thing is over. >> that's what you speculate because the other suspect had an ied strapped to his chest? >> absolutely. we don't know the whole background on these guys. we don't know what their motive was. we don't know exactly all the things. a lot of it is going to be -- we're going to determine that in the next several hours. but it doesn't sound like they want to be captured or he wants to be captured and go through the justice system. i think he's going to shoot it out within way or the other. >> let me ask you a quick question. can this be done by two individuals? meaning do you need more of a support system to get all of the materials that were clearly required to this
theory? >> well, i think it's out there. i think it's something of a society and certainly the law enforcement and the intelligence community, they clearly know that this is not a hoax. this is not something that somebody is coming up and developing and so forth. those organizations and the type of organizations that are really fertilizing terrorist activities, it's real. and it's real for the united states. i think we've gotten a piece of that here in the last few weeks here, based on the activities that we've taken place there. if you talk to many of the law enforcement people and so forth, they will look back and say, "this had to be an operation by these two young men that was planned and it was worked over years, not over just a few weeks or so, over months and over years that they have been there". >> chief shaffer, a lot of people are saying this, there are 100 agents or more looking for this cell. these two guys couldn't have done it. they are amateurs, what is your take on this? are we going to wake up and find out there was a much bicker conspiracy. >> if you look at what
devastation. it started out as a law enforcement investigation, but as authorities said last night that is likely to change. >> this will be a combined, federal, state and lookal effort. it will be an ongoing investigation, it is a criminal investigation that has the potential -- is a potential terrorist investigation. >> our next news briefing is just minutes away at the bottom of the hour and cnbc will carry at least part of that live. it is going include massachusetts governor deval patrick and the fbi special agent in charge who you just heard of, massachusetts, two u.s. senators are both at the westin hotel behind me and a large amount of media from around the world. everyone asked me the same question, which is why? david? >> thank you very much, scott cohn reporting, of course, from boston. after a very rough monday which sought dow plunge by almost 266 points since the biggest drop in november. futures are on the rebound. better than expected from coca-cola and johnson & johnson, but on the flipside, target warning that its first quarter earnings citing expectations and cit
that there will be some change in the electoral law, in the expanse public sector and for the italian politics and some changes in terms of structural reforms that could carry over until the beginning of next year. while obviously it's not the ideal scenario overall, because italy needs something more than just a little changes here and there, but that would be the first step in the right direction. >> right. and as annalisa says, futures could cause near term volatility. thanks very much. she's a senior economist at new edge. speaking of tumultuous, russia's president is coming under controver controversy. while russia's economy hadn't performed badly last year, falling commodity prices risk pushing the country into recession. these comments come just hours after president putin threatened to fire officials for not following his orders on public spending. geoff cutmore is outside this event. what are you hearing about these concerns and the russian economy overnight? >> reporter: absolutely. fascinating issue. we clearly see some risks emerging in the russian government at this point. and i just want
five years of professional journalism, i decided to hang it up and go back to law school. the good news? i saved enough to pay for my first year all through the stock market. i would i would never have been able to make enough had i just kept it in a saving account. and by the way, let's be clear, an index fund would have made me nothing, nothing at all. if you want to go and get started, go small. invest in what you know. research it intensely. back then, i got old data from the public library. now information is free, ubiquitous. including up to the minute financials, analyst presentations, conference calls that i tell ur are musts if you're going to know what you are doing. simple? no. lucrative? you bet it is. kiann in new york. >> caller: hi, jim-bo. >> yo. >> caller: general question for you. what could be considered a good rate of return on investment and does it differ depending on asset class? >> i think you're measured against bonds. if you can get something, say, twice the risk free rate and get a good tax rate on it, in other words, like you have a reduced tax on the dividen
're sharing it with other law enforcement agencies, just trying to see if anybody knows this person and there is to doubt a strategy to that. but they don't want to get the information or any pictures out of the public yesterday to perhaps clue this person in on where they're at in the investigation. so we can't independently verify any of those other pictures that are floating out there and i can tell you that the authorities have not officially released any pictures. >> has there been a sense of frustration from the authorities, scott, because of all of the, you know, head fakes and misinformation that has gotten out, some of the early stuff that's been out, also because of potential media that's made it easy to make these pictures go around very quickly. >> well, i'm sure there's a great deal of frustration. we've with he got the fbi's statement that came midafternoon yesterday after the false reports of an arrest. that was pretty strongly worded that said that basically admonished the media to vet your information better. that said that the reports of an arrest were erroneous an
's marathon bomb, now responding to investigator's questions. law enforcement trying to piece together what was behind the attacks. scott cohn has the latest on the investigation. good morning, scott. >> good morning, andrew. we expect there could be criminal charges against dzhokhar tsarnaev today. chillingly after the bombing a week with ago today, he and his brother tamerlan appeared to resume their normal lives. friends say he was at dartmouth, work withing out at the gym, talking about the bombing. and they are still in disbelief. >> it's hard top comprehend someone could go doing normal college kid stuff to bombing a marathon. >> and that about the older brother, tamerlan, 26 years old? he apparently talked to his parents in russia after the bombing and said everything was okay. he he went back to russia last year and was not interviewed afterwards. that has some on capitol hill wondering how did the intelligent agencies miss this? >> the fact that we could not track him as to be fixed. it's people like this that you don't want to let out of your site. this was a mistake. i don't know
and doesn't care about anyone else. law enforcement has an extremely difficult challenge but they are up to it. >> we are showing video of officers going house to house in watertown. can you tell us what's happening as we go into the home, what they're doing and how they're questioning people. >> oh, sure. experience leads them to fully verbalize what they're doing, to assess the people that they're talking to. they're trying to read body signs and body language, i guess it could be that the homeowner doesn't know that the person is in their house or basement or shed. so they have about 15, 20, 30 things to think about while they're doing this. it's something that they're used to. >> difficult choices, i would think, given the fact that if indeed you have a homeowner that doesn't know they have a fugitive in their house, i cannot imagine the pressure that these officers and these military people are under when they have to make that choice. and what if this guy has explosives strapped to him. what do they do? how do they make those decisions? >> those choices are ones that they have to c
the latest out of the boston area. it began last night, in fact. two men identified by law enforcement sources as the boston marathon attack suspects armed with explosives and guns were battling authorities in a suburb of boston suburb watertown this morning. there was chaos until police took one man into custody and the other one fled. he is said to be armed and dangerous. one of the suspects taken into custody is dead. the other is still on the run. the standoff erupted shortly after the shooting of a police officer. now, references the photograph released by the fbi on thursday, authorities say it's the white hat suspect known as suspect number two who remains on the loose. again, as authorities told us in a preference conference this morning, he is considered armed and dangerous, a threat to anybody who might approach him. that's why the authorities in that area are warning residents in the area to stay in their homes. they're warning motorists, as well, moving through obviously not to pick up anyone that they might see on the road. there are reports of explosive devices. one resid

secretary jay carney. >> this is the result of sequester that was never meant to be law. it was never meant to be law for reasons like this. congress can act. it could have acted in the past. it could have brought down the sequester and avoided it entirely. congress could act now to do that. republicans in congress could decide that the victory party is over and it's time to get serious about the economy. >> reporter: now, it was never meant to be, but it is a fact of life for travelers just as the summer traveling season begins to heat up. bill? >> hampton, thank you very much. so what impact will an air traffic control slowdown have on the airline business and on their stocks? joining us, seth caplan, managing partner at airline weekly. an online airline industry newsletter. and our own phil lebeau joining us as well. seth, obviously the sequester was meant to be a worst case scenario. nobody wanted to see it happen, but it has. is this the worst case scenario for the airline business right now in your view? >> not the worst case scenario, but it's certainly very frustrating. for the all
injured. and now a full blown law enforcement investigation going on led by the fbi. >> this will be a combined federal, state and local effort. it will be an ongoing investigation. it is a criminal investigation that is -- has the potential -- is a potential terrorist investigation. >> and, of course, terrorism, the operative phrase here, whether it was organized terrorist groups, whether it was a smaller group or whatever, we don't know. there have been claims of responsibility online, but authorities are suggesting to nbc news that a lot of that is background noise. it might be people who are just being opportunistic. so we will see what happens. we're still several hours away from the next press briefing at 9:30 eastern time where we'll hear more from the fbi, what they found overnight and we should point out that authorities were at an apartment building in revere, massachusetts, about 20 miles away from here. we do not know what relation, if any, there was to the incident but it was a federal search warrant reportedly that was carried out. guys. >> do we know i

as a result of the law? >> in a general sense, yes. i think some of the banks like ubs have already progressed a lot, in that direction. other banks are still trying to sort of, you know, postpone that strategic and structural debate. >> so how does this play out? every analyst report i read, it's not about earnings growth, it's about all these regulators and what this is going to mean for the major banks. >> sure, and when we embarked, and i was part of the group that was rewriting this global regulation, one thing we always tried to make sure, that is a level playing field. i think over the last two years, the whole regulation has swung somewhat away from trying to ensure a global level playing field, and with global systemic surcharges for all the global banks being the stapame to regulators forcing a lot more on local operations. so i think they need to get that process back to the fsb, back to the g-20, and really have a discussion about the global level of the playing field for regulation, because we're all global banks now. and you cannot avoid a financial crisis of dimension of the las

, marking a dramatic turn for law enforcement officials trying to piece together what was behind that attack. our scott cohn is in boston and has the latest on the investigation. scott, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carl. it's hard to believe it's been one week since those horrible bombings at the end of the boston marathon. later today at 2:50 local time, the precise time of those bombings one week ago, there will be a moment of silence in boston and church bells will toll throughout the city. dzhokhar tsarnaev, the 19-year-old bombing suspect remains in serious condition where he is recovering from his wound, but apparently he is alert enough to begin responding to some of the investigators' questions. many of those responses in writing because he has gunshot wound possibly, self-inflicted to the throat, but amazingly, he and his brother for some three days managed to hide in plain sight. dzhokhar at umass dartmouth where he was a student, he worked out in the gym, even talked to friends about the bombing. imagine how chilling that was for his classmates. >> i'm in diss belief,
a continued heightened law enforcement presence as the city tries to come to grips with a violent attack in the heart of boston. and that was katie davis there with that report. now london's metropolitan police are reviewing security plans for this sunday's marathon after the explosion in boston. the minister told bbc the best way to show solidarity with boston is to continue the race as the french president has stepped up security around public buildings in this country and raised the threat level to red. >>> speaking earlier, it was said the long lasting impact of terrorist attacks are low. >> research into terrorist incidents over many, many years, their economic impact, their direct economic impact tends to be very, very small, indeed. a lot of good research done on this in israel. what i would say is yes, of course, very often the economic cost is largely in how we react. what new measures are put in place to counter this sort of thing often i'm afraid a certain amount of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. i'm afraid we live in a world where terrorism incidents are

consideration. amazon already collects sales tax. the current law requires them to collect the sales tax for online purchases if they have a physical presence in the state where the consumer lives. if the legislation passes, though, online retailers with revenues of more than a million dollars a year could be faced with the task of keeping up with 10,000 different tax jurisdictions. even though all of us are supposed to claim uncollected sales tax on the filings, i bet most of us don't. >> 10,000 tax jurisdictions. that's ridiculous. >> it's a lot. thanks a lot. airlines, railroads and the all important apple. all those reports out today. and the earnings squad standing by to break it down. this can save you hundreds of dollars on your cell phone blil. why millions around the world are kicking it when the ceo of kik messenger joins us live. the ocean gets warmer. the peruvian anchovy harvest suffers. it raises the price of fishmeal, cattle feed and beef. bny mellon turns insights like these into powerful investment strategies. for a university endowment. it funds a marine biologist... wh
